While we're proud to be publishing some of the most exciting new voices in the field, it's important to mention that we're not the only place you can find these voices. There's been something of an explosion in small-press and independent publishing in recent years, and we're delighted to be able to showcase some of these publications in our Small Press Package.

For the last four years, Strange Horizons staff members have held extremely well-attended tea parties at many of the major conventions in the United States, often in conjunction with other publications and publishers.

$500 -- Friends and Family

It was difficult for us to come up with appropriate thank-you gifts for those of you who help us out by donating at this level; it's such a good thing you're doing for us, so we want to do something really good for you in return. At this level, you get everything included in the Portable Tea Party package, but you also get a hand-knit scarf made by our Editor-in-Chief. A cozy, attractive, and highly functional addition to any Strange Horizons member's wardrobe. As an added bonus, you get to choose the colors. (Note: Due to the time required to knit the scarf, the rest of the package will be sent to you separately, and the scarf might take a while. But it'll be great once it gets there.)

Or send a check or money order to our post office address:
